Intersectional Feminist Justice, Research, and Organizing Collaborative
Intersectional Feminist Justice Research and Organizing Collaborative (IFJROC) brings together researchers, academics, data and policy analysts, students, and community organizers to provide critical research, data, policy and strategic support for ending violence, gender equity, and social justice movements.
IFJROC builds on the long tradition of movement-driven, community-derived research and uses an explicit decolonial, anti-oppression, and racial justice lens.
The IFJROC provides critical data, research, and policy analytics to grassroots and community-based organizing campaigns.
IFJROC aims to democratize data, research, and policy, maximize the synergy between research and community organizing, magnifying the voices of grassroots Indigenous, Black and communities of colour including Migrant, Refugee, and Immigrant communities, and advancing the capacity of organizing efforts to design solutions, make demands, and sustain policy wins for gender equity and ending gender-based violence through:
- Comprehensive research
- Rapid response data and analysis
- Program and systems evaluations
- Policy analysis
- The Research and Policy Analyst serves as a bridge for grassroots and community organizing groups to the world of data, policy and research.
